My Labor Day was Better than Yours
September 4, 2013

For the past 5 months, I have been able to be back on the track doing my weekly sprint workouts. I knew I loved this day of training, but I had forgotten how much clarity it brings me every time I step foot on the track. Thank God my Achilles is healing and I can run again!

A few of my athletes have personal trained with me outside of class, and we worked on speed and power, specifically using bands. This is a fun way to get on the track and work at a high intensity. Pictured above is Kate working on arm drive, leg turnover, and knee drive.

I came across a great article by Charles Poliquin on 8 reasons why everyone should do sprints.

  1. Lose fat fast with sprint training
  2. Build muscle and target fast-twitch muscle fibers
  3. Increase endurance and work capacity
  4. Improve heart health
  5. Improve insulin sensitivity and energy use
  6. Improve conditioning, circulation, and lung function
  7. Improve cognition, brain volume, and prevent depression
  8. Save time while building mental toughness.
